Is that an English version of Windows, or another language?

I have the same problem since today last night it was working. (W10pro and Audacity 3.0.2)
I uninstalled and then reinstalled the program but it has the same problem.
The program opens but does not accept any commands. (Only the bar to show/hide the scroll ruler reacts. It moves by "picking it up" with the mouse)
In the lower left corner of the screen, it says "stopped". I tried to check the firewall and antivirus (Microsoft Defender) but I didn't find any blocks.
Help!!!!

Resolved!!!!! You need to uninstall the w10 update of May 13, 2121
Perhaps it is useful for developers to find out what the W10 update is about; sooner or later, it will install itself

Are you using a non-English version of Windows?

I'm not sure if Italian Windows is affected by this or not, but there was a bug in a Windows update not long ago that caused these symptoms in some non-English Windows installations (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/top ... a68e328692)
Microsoft have now issued an update to fix the problem, so check that your Windows is fully updated.
